Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 204) Surprises
Looking up at the night sky, Stephen finds the stars are brilliant and endless. He does not recall ever seeing them in this way before. He has always lived in the city where street lamps, car lights, and houses with floodlights dominate the night reducing the view that nighttime displays.
Just as he rounds a tight turn and still preoccupied by the thousands of stars overhead, he walks right into Zsofia as she is coming down the path in the opposite direction.
“Oh! You scared me!” she says as she stumbles backwards almost falling down.
“I am so sorry, I didn’t see you there.” He says as he rushes to grab hold of her arm before she falls. “What are you doing out here at this hour?” He questions in an annoyed yet concerned tone.
It is not that he is upset that she is here he just hates surprises especially when he is in deep thought and a little on edge. Holding her by the arm, he waits for an answer but she begins laughing instead.
